Happy Creation Day!

No seriously. (Ok, I really couldn't do that with a straight face, so it's a good thing you can't SEE my face!)

According to church scholars (with the use of a list of equinoxes and a DART), God made the world on October 23, 4004 BC. At noon.

My question is, noon in what time zone?!

And, of course, the year may be off by one because when they did this precise math, they hadn't yet run into the clever arabic concept of zero, and therefore failed to account for the year 0. There is also that niggling little issue of Herod and Jesus overlapping, that probably skews things by at least three or four years.

So the year may be a bit off, but the date, we're good on that. October 23. At noon.

So happy 6011th birthday weirdo religious earth. Or maybe 6012th... Hardly matters, we're still not giving you an intergalactic drivers licence until you turn 7000, so keep doing those loops until then.
